‘I still struggle to recall words from time to time and get my thoughts out coherently 2 years later,’ she added.  

She elaborated: ‘THEN, I found out I had mononucleosis on top of it all. Also didn’t tell you guys that. One day I had to put my head down on my desk at work because of sheer exhaustion and fell asleep.’

‘Long story short, one of the reasons I’ve been so committed to healthy eating and fitness since the pandemic started is because it took a full year from the head injury + mono for me to be in a place where I could even consider exercising with regularity,’ she explained. 

The entrepreneur concluded her message by saying the post is a reminder that health is ‘precious and sometimes taken for granted.’ 

‘If you have it, take advantage of it. All my love,’ she told her fans.

‘I also have memory issues/ lose my words due to brain fog from autoimmune issues. I know the feeling!’ the tennis player, who suffers from Sjogren’s syndrome, admitted. 

In 2017, Bosworth spoke about battling depression and anxiety on her blog, The Lo Down.  

‘Can you imagine having a 60 day long panic attack? I can now – I lived it,’ she wrote after suffering from a ‘racing mind, impulsive behavior and insomnia for ‘almost two months without any relief.’
